95 Glassbrook Family Members, Neighbors and AmeriCorps Volunteers turned out and wowed us all with their enthusiasm and community spirit!
We planted an additional 20 Myrtle Trees along Huntwood bringing the total on our new “Tree-Lined Boulevard” to over 100 new trees planted in the past 2 years by a wonderful partnership of the City and our Glassbrook Neighborhood Cleanup Team!
Volunteers also did a great job picking up trash and debris on our regular 5 miles of streets including: Huntwood from Huntwood Way to Harris, Gading, Schafer, Patrick,Harder Road from Soto to Grocery Outlet, Tyrrell Aand Manon from Schafer to Shepherd.
As always, we are deeply appreciative of Councilman Mark Salinas and his Kids Breakfast Club. The stuff us with a hearty breakfast of Scrambled Eggs and Pancakes before we hit the streets! Many AmeriCorps volunteers pitch in to cook the breakfast and to staff the cleanup. Special Thanks to Marilyn Montenegro who organized the AmeriCorps contingent.
We appreciate all the support of the City of Hayward Streets Division. They do a great job hauling away all the bags and dumped furniture for us! And we are so appreciative of the support of Blytha Bowers and the Keep Hayward Clean & Green Task Force of which our efforts as a standing neighborhood team are one small part!
Principal Jessica Saavedra has rallied the Glassbrook families to our cause and we can’t thank her enough!
Next Cleanup is Sat Nov 10th! See you then!
